by Susan Jones, CNSnews:

Addressing the annual NAACP convention in Orlando, Fla., Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that opponents of Obamacare are the same kind of people who opposed civil rights legislation in the 1960s.

    What would happen if everybody that payed into the treasury via the IRS held a strike or work stoppage for a week? a month and stood on a picket line just daring the scabs to cross it? Somebody has to pay for those food snaps and welfare projects.

      MOre money has been spent on bankster welfare queen bailouts and military industrial war profiteers than has been spent on the poor in the entire history of the world. Just since the bailouts of 2008 (not even counting the savings & loan scandal, the long term capital management scandal) etc.

      How about the war on teror and the war on drugs? More money has been spent buying crap that kills people and that is not even to mention the illegal wars in every middle eastern & african nation that we don’t even know about.

      I’d rather some poor grandmother had food than pay for that crap.
